Estrogen has historically been viewed as a major regulator of adipose tissue in adult females, but recent work has indicated that estrogen's role in adipose biology may be broader than initially appreciated and has also provided important insights into the mechanism of estrogen effects on adipose tissue. Estrogen has direct effects on adipocytes to inhibit lipogenesis and may also have direct effects on other cellular constituents of adipose tissue, as well as metabolic effects on other target… CONTINUE READING
